West Ham United have completed the loan of England’s goalkeeper Joe Hart, with an option to buy at the end of the season.
Hart, 30, joins the Hammers on a season-long loan from Manchester City.
He said, “It’s important for me to play football and to get the opportunity to come here and play is absolutely awesome.
“To be playing in the Premier League for a big club like West Ham, I’m really looking forward to the season.
“I’ve always loved the Club. I think you’ll struggle to find anyone, apart from the direct opposing fans around London, who doesn’t love the Club. It’s got something about it, it’s got a lot history and I’ve always loved playing against West Ham.
“We’ve moved into London Stadium and we’ve got Slaven in charge who I’ve spoken to and I’ve always enjoyed as a manager. He obviously did a good job with Croatia and he’s doing a good job here, so to get the opportunity to come here, it wasn’t really a hard decision.”
The Hammers can make the England international’s move permanent at the end of the season for around £15 million.
